Kiehl’s Haul

My gorgeous friends a Kiehl’s meadowhall are my absolute favourite people, they provided goodies for my event, they keep letting me stop by for facials and sharing their amazing products with me. The Sheffield blogger girls and myself are working with thoroughly to share some of these opportunities with the local blogger community.

However this is all for the future and completely irrelevant to this post, soooooooo lets move on to my haul. Honestly there’s so much to share I don’t know where to start.

Lets start with samples!
samples

Above there is samples of there light weight creams, skin perfectors with SPF and their BB creams. Out of the products I’ve used the BB creams more than anything, when ever I’m in store or just had a facial with them I insist to use their BB cream before I leave. Its lightweight and subtle. If you have a very pink face like myself but don’t want heavy foundation, get this.

Day and night oil

Daily Reviving Concentrate and the Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
The Day and Night oils are two of Kiehl’s signature products, these both are really lightweight and don’t sit on your skins like most oils, they just sink straight in and get working.

Rose Artica

 

Rosa Arctica
I’ve not tried this product yet, this is in the large sample size. I’m really excited to try this out.

Line-reducing concentrate

Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate 
This light weight anti-aging cream is used for reducing wrinkles and pores. I look like a 12 year old so I’ve not really tried this yet, but I’m going to see if my mum could review it for me.

Deluxe Hand and Body Lotion  
See.

cleanser

Orange Flower and Lychee Body Cleanser 
So excited to try this, I adore the the Orange Flower and Lychee Perfume they do, so no doubt I will love this.

Masque

Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque 
This is so brightening, I tried it in store and my skin had this glow that it never has. It is very pricey compared to other face masks, normally Lush are my go to for face masks, but I fell in love with this the moment I tried it.

Thank you again Kiehl’s for how amazing you are. I’m so excited to review these and keep hoarding products.

Have you tried Kiehl’s? Whats your favourite product by them?

My Obsession

This isn’t going to be a long post, or even a detailed post. I’m literally just highlighting my current obsession/addiction. You all are aware that I have a shopping problem. I always have, I probably always will.
This addiction has become tsum what of a problem.

I am addicted/obsessed/in love with Disney Tsum Tsums.

So far I only have thirteen, but these are all that are on my birthday wish list. It all started when my ex bought me a couple last year for my birthday. He bought me Stitch for my birthday.

When I passed my driving test last August I then got Winnie and Donald.

IMG_1284

In the last few months I’ve found myself them more and more. Now I’ve got a cute little pyramid of tsums. I’ve vowed to keep buying them until I have the full little mermaid collection.

IMG_1280

Ariel, Triton, Eric, Sebastian. You will be mine and until then I will just keep collecting and hoarding from other collections.

Nina L’Eau Nina Ricci perfume

Throwback to Amsterdam really quick, when I was in the airport for my return flight I were determined to buy a perfume. I must have spent 20 minutes smelling everything in the store until I found the one. I bought the Nina L’Eau  by Nina Ricci perfume, which I have decided to make my smell of summer.

486

While costing £37 for a 50 ml bottle, a little will go a long way. This scent to Nina is very long lasting and sweet. It’s a very soft sweet smell though, some sweet perfumes make me sneeze, but this is perfectly balanced. If I was a more poetic writer I would say its light, sweet and romantic. When I say long lasting, I mean long lasting, I spritz a little on in the morning and I still catch a whiff of it in the evening.

488

The packaging is truly adorable. The bottle is a cute little apple, that is slightly tinted pink. The detailing is subtle and gorgeous. Nina is by far the prettiest perfume I have ever owned.

490

I am massively obsessed with the perfume, I am proud to say this will be the scent of my summer maybe even of the year. I have been completely blown away by this product, I will be definitely re-buying this when it runs out.

What perfume are you wearing/loving right now? Would you like more posts like this?

Valley Centertainment Blogger Evening

A few weeks a go, I was part of a lucky few to get invited along to the Valley Centertainment Bloggers Evening, we will be call VCBE from now on though. For those who aren’t from Sheffield Valley Centertainment is a hub of restaurants, and all of the fun things. Like play areas of kids, laser quest, mini golf, cinema. If you ever come to our little city it’s definitely a place you need to visit.
I met up with most of the bloggers in Starbucks for a coffee and a catch up before we headed over to Hollywood Bowl where we were treated to half an hour of bowling at Hollywood Bowl. I’m not competitive, but when I lose at anything I want to cry. I quickly became annoying to everyone else when they we’re doing well and I was trying to find ways to cheat. I didn’t win, but one of the girls were nice enough to give me her winner sticker.

Then it was my time to shine! We went to laser quest, and when I said I’m not competitive I was lying! We chose our names for the game, the girls all had their real names and I called myself ‘Winner’.  I was in my element. I hid in one spot and everyone just kept not expecting me and getting shot. Rightly so, I was hot, sweaty and finally a winner.

After running up an appetite, we headed over to Chiquitos for a cocktail and some food. I ordered a frozen Mojito because I’m classic winner, just like the mojito. I ordered Salmon fajita and a bowl of coleslaw for dinner, and the were so delicious. Everyone knows I have a crazy obsession with coleslaw – I was satisfied

750.JPG

Once we had eaten we headed for a short round of crazy golf at paradise island. We split up into teams and had 20 minutes to complete as much of the course as we could. I hate golf. I’m rubbish at it, and uneven floors mean I trip up a lot. I didn’t win but I tried and that is all that matters, is what I tell myself with gritted teeth.

After tiring ourselves out at crazy golf we headed to Frankie & Benny’s to sample a handful of their desserts. I’ve never been happier. I live on mojitos, I happily necked it and sampled all of the puddings but the banoffee pie. My personal favourite was the chocolate oreo fudge cake thing.

762.JPG

The other girls headed to the cinema and all of the winning had tired me out, so I headed home to have a well deserved sleep.  I would really like to thank all of the businesses and Valley Centertainment of inviting me along. I had an amazing time.

Roseannah Colour Match Event

Around a month ago, I was invited be Becky of Country Pearls to a colour matching evening at Roseannah, a local, ethical business that specialises in quality accessories.

563

The shop its self its a very modern and open space, filled with gorgeous displays. There are then two large mirrors where we spent most of the event looking into. We were shown what colours suit our tones best and how to accessorise to bring out our features.

559.JPG

I was told that I have very warm tones, so I should stick to pastels and burgundies. Which is okay because these are my favourite colours! I really enjoyed learning about colours and highlighting our features.

However what I was truely interested in was the ethics of the company. I couldn’t believe all of the charity work that as business they do. While supporting various charities, Roseannah are fighting human trafficking, a cause that is so important in our lives. There are thousands of people who a trafficked every year, more people need to stand up and fight against this travesty.  The work the Roseannah does the human kind is something that needs to be highlighted and discussed so much further.

I had a really great evening, and I would love to come back to learn how I can help with supporting these charities.

Real Techniques Limited Edition Cheek and Lip Set

If you saw my Superdrug Haul that recently came out you might be aware that I bought the Real Techniques Limited Edition Cheek and Lip Set. I needed to wash my other brushes and I really didn’t want to clean them, it takes effort and patience and I don’t have that. Soooo I bought this limited edition kit. The kit its self was £20.99, but I think I got it on offer. I’ve lost the receipt so who knows!

Microfiber compact cheek brush

This is the densely packed, UltraPlush bristles cheek brush. This a really dense and soft brush. I’d really recommend it for blending make up out, the angle of the brush would give a really nice finish. The bristles are synthetic but I cant get over how soft they are.

duo-fiber contour brush

Next is the Duo-fiber Contour Brush. This brush has a really nice stippling effect to it, its angled on the sides but the bristles are at different lengths. I wouldn’t recommend this brush for blending or finishing however because of the stippled affect it would be amazing for sculpting.

819.JPG

This is a really nice Travel Lip Brush, like most travel brushes this brush came with a nice lid. My favourite feature is that this brush retracts though so I can go tiny. I love how compact this is. For the bristles they are fine and would be absolutely perfect for a lip contour.

Overall, I’m impressed with the quality of these brushes. All of them are soft and seem to be strong. I haven’t experienced any shedding with any of them at all so far, we will see how they hold up over the extensive use they will endure.

See you next time!

Friction Free Shaving Cocktail Masterclass

A few weeks ago, I was  invited to the Friction Free Shaving‘s Cocktail Masterclass at Bar Opus, Birmingham to celebrate them smashing their crowdfunding goal!  I was a tad nervous about attending after my last visit to Birmingham but I was going t meet up with best friend and fellow blogger natalie.

In honour of FFS massive achievement they put together this amazing master class to say thank you and to show off a new feature that they will be bringing out.

We arrived in birmingham with a warm welcome, a FFS goody bag and a glass of wine. This even was already a winner at this point.

455

The first cocktail we made was the Samantha which was named after FFS’ best selling razor. This drink was a concoction of Chase lemon cello, lemonade and lemongrass. This was so refreshing and sweet, I pretty much drank it like pop it was so nice

471

Our second drink was Faye, which one of FFS other razors which is only model I haven’t tried. The drink its self was honeycomb, honey,  honey whisky and milk. Unfortunately milk doesn’t really agree with me but Natalie thoroughly enjoyed drinking two.

482We then made Frankie, the final cocktail of the day. This was by far my favourite, layers of some kind of liqueur, rosewater and Prosecco. I found bliss in this drink…

Now lets nosey into this goody bag.

492So there was a new razor, some Joe and Sephs Popcorn and a whisk. All local brands and a quirky mix. But that pop corn though.

But here comes the best part. My razor was personalised, Samantha has my name engraved! Which is fantastic, its such a cute feature to be bringing out and could make such a wonderful gift or a treat for yourself.

500

My camera isn’t good enough to focus on what is engraved.

I had a really amazing time and I got to see my long distance best friend. Would you like to read a FFS review?
